I purchased a used HP keyboard mod 5187-7583 but my computer does not recognize it. I'm using Windows 10-64. Do I need to download drivers for this keyboard?


It could be the "adapter", read this The pros and cons of PS 2 to USB adapters and converters

If you really, really like this keyboard you could always install one of these 2 Port USB 2 0 2 Port PS 2 Combo to PCI Adapter Converter Card NEC Chipset

Personally, I don't see the sense this is a old keyboard and HP didn't even release Windows 7 drivers for it, forget about Windows 10. This means that none of the special function keys or media control will work.

to raid, or not to raid,? that is the question............


Hi,

Always a good question,

For #1

Always a good idea to mirror your OS drive for quick recovery. So yes I would use 40GB of the velociraptor for a mirror. However if your board supports it I would actually suggest you would be better served for your dollar to buy some 500GB+ WD greens or seagate 7200.12's(do NOT buy 7200.11) then set them up as raid5, frankly you'll get redundancy and speed, with more space. 4 Greens will perform as well as three VRs and cost less.

I currently run two Greens and 2 7200.12's on my home server and the 7 rating is 7.6 for my HDD and I've got 4.2TB of space for under $500.

I mentions some of the pro's and cons in detail on my blog last week Pro's and Cons.

Hope this helps,

Chris

Playstation 2 USB + HDD


actually the USB port on the PS2 is for game paraphernalias like ps2 keyboard or ps2 webcam and other accesories and it also depends on the game

if you're trying to play a game saved on an HDD using the USB, it really won't work
